I just want let you knoe that the first XLR V arrived at the dealers.
If you want to see a black/ebony one go to ebay.com - put in Cadillac XLR - page three.
It`s at Cadillac of Memphis.
Yea and did you see the price? So where is the V that was due at Allen Cadillac this month?

This aint no underpriced Corvette Z06 where people will pay 10K over sticker in my opinion.
I think Chevy got a home run with the pricing of the Z06 and Caddy blew it with the XLR-V. Always better to price fair and get over sticker with demand (Z06) then over price. Time will tell but I think this car will be selling over invoice not sticker not to long from now.
Also, where are the reviews of this car - I assume in next months car mags but its odd as usually they review before cars hit market.
0-60 in under 5 seconds is not very clear to me as that can mean anything.
It may not be in a unique class, but it is in a very limited one. BMW has discontinued its slow selling v8 roadster. I own a S55 AMG which has the same engine as the SL55 AMG which is the car closest to the V. While I love the engine, in all honesty it is not nearly as capable a sports car as the XLR. Given the XLR-V's new power and factoring in price there is no comparison. A SL55 will set you back almost 170K. So, while not unique if you want a highly capable luxury roadster, it is about the only choice.mswaim said:You will never hear me say anything bad about the Corvette, I'm in my third one and love it. We have also owned numerous Cadillacs, including three Allantes and a CTS. In fact, the real increase in Cadillac sales has been in the SUV and CTS classes, not across the board.
Only time will tell what its true capabilites are, however the power to weight ratio does not place it in a unique class, numbers-wise.
